This is my 200th post! For some reason that seems crazy to me. To think.. I’ve had 200 hundred things to share. Along the way I’ve made some new blogging friends and that really means a lot to me. Even though we don’t know each other in real life I think of blogging as a very personal thing so I think we are beginning to know each other pretty well.
Speaking of personal things, my 6 week OB check up was on Wednesday and it went well. I’ve healed correctly and the pain I was having turned out to be no more than me over doing life and the fibro. I’m cleared to exercise and return to normal activities so that’s been a huge weight off of my shoulders. I can clean again! Hooray! Kinda kidding.
During the appointment things got pretty serious as we talked about how I was feeling emotionally. I was honest about feeling miserable and ended up being diagnosed with post-partum depression. This really was not shocking at all. I knew I was struggling and the fact is I was getting worse and worse. The doctor put me on Zoloft and set me up with a therapist that I will meet next week. Addressing this was more of a relief than being cleared for activities as I have seriously feeling shitty for more than a few weeks. I’m not upset about any of it, I just want to feel better and already know how the game of depression goes, so I know I’ll be doing much better in a little while.
Such a happy topic for my 200th post :)
Really, it is kinda happy because I’m getting the help I need.
Well, I don’t have much else to say right now, and the baby is about to start fussing wildly so I will end it for the day here. I hope everyone had a great week!
